Walmart Continues to Expand – Elsewhere

Britain: Retailer Plans Expansion
The retailer Asda Group, a unit of Wal-Mart Stores, unveiled a $776 million expansion that it said would create more than 9,000 jobs this year. Asda plans to open as many as 22 stores and build 12 extensions, totaling 800,000 square feet, after attracting two million new customers last year.
No mention how this fits in with the attempts to trample local zoning regulations. It would appear that the expansion plans will go ahead without the siting changes requested. On the other hand what it might mean is that Walmart is confident that they will get the needed permissions.
